CLU Design Center

Photography Services

We provides photographic services designed to increase CLU's visibility and enhance its reputation for academic quality through images published in major publications and CLU's Web site. In addition to University event coverage and special photographic assignments, CLU photographers document student and academic life, year round, for use in publications and the University Web site.

Scheduling a Photographer

CLU's part-time University Photographer, Brian Stethem, and other staff members also provide special photographic services. These outstanding photographers also have limited availability. Therefore, we often need to contract with freelance professionals. Because timely scheduling is critical, please submit your photo requests at least two weeks in advance.

To see if a photographer is available for your event, please email the event details to
